The Online Trading Academy Story

Eyal Shahar

100% Focused on the Highest Quality Education

Eyal Shahar, our founder and President, started this business in 1997 when he was operating a large trading floor in Irvine, California. To help his traders at that time, his team created education classes for them. The education that he provided to these traders became so effective that he switched the focus of the company from active trading to education and since then, we have been 100% focused on developing and delivering the world’s highest quality independent financial education classes.

Whether a student is interested in becoming an active trader, developing more effective wealth management strategies, or learning how to generate short-term income, we have education solutions that can help them. Visit the Education section of our web site to see the variety of courses we offer.

Franchise territories are still available. If you would like to know more about owning an Online Trading Academy franchise, just submit this inquiry form for details.
